Did you know that Michelle is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio? It’s no coincidence that one of her favorite desserts are called Buckeyes. These mouth-watering morsels filled with peanut butter and chocolate are a staple at the Duggars’ holiday feasts and are usually provided by one of Michelle’s older sisters.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb creamy peanut butter

  • 2 sticks softened butter

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 lb confectioners’ sugar

  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, butter, vanilla and confectioners’ sugar. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet.
  • Chill in freezer until firm, about 30 minutes.
  • Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or in a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until smooth.
  • Press a toothpick into the top of the peanut butter ball as the handle for dipping into the chocolate. Dip frozen peanut butter balls in chocolate holding onto the toothpick. Leave a small portion of peanut butter showing at the top to make them look like Buckeyes. Put back on the cookie sheet and refrigerate until serving!

Bringing hope and healing to serve those in need.

    I really appreciate your family and it’s Christian values. I always wanted to have brothers and sisters but unfortunately my parents weren’t able to have more children so I was alone! I wish your show was on weekly because there are so few good shows on TV. Keep up the good work! I tried to sign up for the email but it’s said “ you do not have permission to add to the subscriber.“. I’d love to get your email.
